Warming Up For Winter: Our Favorite Soups and Stews

Soups and stews are pretty much the ultimate fall and winter food. Most recipes freeze well and can easily be doubled to feed a crowd (making them perfect for game day!). Most are also designed to cook low and slow for long periods of time, making them a great option for your slow cooker while you’re away at work all day.

You can easily make substitutions if there’s an ingredient you don’t like and they’re also perfect for using up all those veggies that are left in the fridge at the end of the week!

If you find yourself making the same couple of soup recipes over and over again, here are a few tips to encourage you to try something new!

Add a Unique Ingredient! Sometimes a seemingly everyday ingredient that isn’t typically used in soup can really give your bowl a flavor boost.

Go Vegetarian! There are a lot of great meat-based soups and stews out there but they’re also a great chance to try out a vegetarian protein source. Things like beans and lentils are a great option.
